Got this pen today, had the ST3 in silver prior to this, and am liking it alot more than the ST3. The build quality is much better, metal threading, smoother changing of inks, etc. If looking at a Sharbo, I highly recommend the LT3 body, perfect size for my taste and better quality than ST3. The ink was another concern of mine, but been using the same black ink for a couple weeks now and it isn't showing signs of giving out. I use the pen daily, albeit not as much as when I was in school, but still gets used daily. The pen is well worth it in my opinion, if you're looking for a good multi pen, I don't think you can beat these.

When you first get it, it is beautiful. But even with care, the pen gets nicked and dented easily. After a few months of use, the paint flakes off. Wish that the finish was permanent and not superficial.

To add to my previous review. I recently discovered that the grips from the cheap Bic mechanical pencils fit this pen perfectly, and don't look too out of place, which adds to the comfort greatly, in my opinion, making this an even better pen. Also, and far more importantly, the Pilot Hi-Tec Slims refills (in 0.3mm and 0.4mm) fit all Sharbo pens, and they write BEAUTIFULLY, better than Hi-Tec pens or Coleto pens. Not only is this the best multi-pen in my opinion, but arguably the best pen, period.

Verified Purchase
This is the ultimate pen. Elegant, simple, modern. It has a really solid feel to it.

Note: you must keep the pen *between* two settings to maintain a retracted tip. The pen goes well in a shirt pocket or a pencil case; however, there is some risk to a tip becoming exposed and writing into your pants if you choose to carry it in pocket.

Although I eagerly give this pen five stars, it could still be better. I use mine with the Zebra .4mm gel tips in black and in red and with a .3mm mechanical pencil component. However, I wish the Hi-Tec-C Slim refills would work, and I would use their .3mm gel pen components. The Zebra tips are very smooth, but I've gotten used to the scratchy control of a Hi-Tec-C .3mm tip. I wish they were compatible, but they are not (the Hi-Tec-C Slim gel pen components are a tiny bit too small). Also, I miss the fine line that the .3mm produces when compared to the .4mm Zebra tip.

Nevertheless, if I get used to the .4mm tip or if Zebra produces their own .3mm tip (which I doubt), then this would become the only pen I carry around.

I have a small collection of the Zebra Sharbo pens and the LT3 is my favorite, for sure. They are versatile multifunction pens which have superb build quality. The metal body feels durable and the pens' size and weight feel great when writing.

The silver color is one of my favorites. It's well suited for every occasion. If you're going to get just one (highly doubt it!) get this one.

I like using the 0.5mm pencil and gel pens, specially the blue and orange ones.

I have a couple of other multipens, but the Zebra Sharbo LT3 is by far the best one I know. Highly recommend this model!

Great pen. I have the silver body to go with all my other titanium/aluminum finished tech. Very refined shape, with subtle sharp edges. Smooth mechanism, light and smooth lock-in indication when choosing which internal pen. Great weight in the hand. xlnt design. the front half of the pen screws down onto the back half, so its very secure, eraser end screws down as well. I also have the Tombow Zoom 414 in a similar color with similar pen/pencil setup. I prefer the Zebra. Its at the office with me every day. I use the Tombow 414 at home. It rattles a bit more, it feels less refined, and the front part comes away from the back part via a snug slide.
